Every single person becomes stressed from time to time. The only difference is in the way people deal with their stress. Most of the people decide to take antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications even though they provide only short-term effects. Also, these medications are causing serious negative side-effects such as nausea, anxiety, reduced sexual desire, insomnia, and weight gain. Due to these reasons you should use natural solutions for this problem, and it is best to use tea, yoga, and meditation.
According to a recent research study conducted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Johns Hopkins University Frankincense found that Frankincense contains great healing properties for your mind.
This is actually the dried resin of Boswellia trees which originates from Northeastern Africa near the Red Sea. This ingredient has been used for centuries in order to protect the liver and the kidneys. Also it has been used to treat different inflammatory diseases, as well to relieve pain. On the other hand it contains anticancer and chemo-preventive properties that fights and reverse the metastases in breast and brain cancer.
Frankincense is able to activate the ion channels in the brain and to reduce the levels of stress or anxiety. It contains incensole acetate which is a chemical substance that impacts a protein in the brain known as TRPV3. This protein is responsible for your feeling of warmth on the skin, which actually explains the ability to balance emotions and unwind the mind. The anti-inflammatory properties also help treat the inflammation which is caused by chronic stress.
Here is how to use it
You might have come across certain smells that stimulates and improve your mood. This is due to the ability of different aromas to stimulate the olfactory bulb which is located in the area of your nose and continues to the brain. The bulb then is connected to the amygdala and hippocampus, which are centers responsible for emotions and memories. This is how different aromas are stimulating the emotions.
Due to these reasons it is great to use frankincense and to be added to your diffuser. In case you already take strong prescribed medications make sure that you consult with your doctor before you use Frankincense.
On the other hand, the resin could also help you treat fever, chest coughs, nausea, and high blood pressure. Feel free to diffuse it with oil in order to keep mosquitoes away as well as other bugs.
